It;s awesome but...kind of underwhelming for the million dollar mark. Was i the only one expecting a free big 'un, or some big bundle of minis? Maybe the remainder of the bones line or something?

 

Still cool, still more awesome value. I was just expecting something huge at a million bucks.

The sea elf type minis would be a nice addition to the Deep Dwellers. I wonder if we'll be seeing them soon? Or will that only happen after the 1.2 mill thing?

At this point there is so much awesome flying around on that kickstarter page a thing like you describe would likely crash the whole works ^_^ !

 

I've never seen the Deep Dwellers line before and they look great! Pirates are always welcome too.

Um... GIANT TREASURE ROOM at the bottom of the map, that's where all the goodies should be!! :-D

Pathfinder Iconics & wow something I don't have in metal already, the Deep Dwellers. I may have to get multiples of that one since those Tiiks are a pretty cool sculpt.

 

Now that is nice one.

 

Now that Pathfinder is aboard the Bones train. Will they becoming out in metal & in Bones now? I for one hope they stay in metal. Bones will be great for the giants & other figures that are needed multiple times in a encounter & such.

Yeah, remember, Bryan said he was looking towards the $1,200,000 mark a while back. How much you wanna bet $1,200,000 is the treasure pile?

That surprised me. I just assumed that the giant treasure pile would be the million dollar mark.

 

Not exactly thrilled about the pirate selection. Only one of them looks like a regular crewman, and the treasure chest on his shoulder makes him very distinctive. I'd have liked more generic looking pirates -- Bones should be about models you want dozens of to fill out large armies and massive encounters, not character models. You know, like townsfolk with torches.

 

I just picked up the Tilk Warriors at my FLGS today, so that's a weird coincidence. That's twice that's happened now -- I bought the Frost Giant King & Queen right before they became options too.

I'm getting a little worried to be honest. Right now I don't see how it will be economically feasible to have future operations done in the USA because of the amount that has to be spent to fulfill the Kickstarter obligations.

 

Right now the Vampire level has A LOT of miniatures, and while it seems to be in the benefit of the supporters to throw more money in now:

 

1) How does Reaper plan on making sure the models get shipped to the supporters on time? After all, we're talking about almost half a million bones figures--give or take a few thousand.

 

2) Will Reaper take the appropriate actions so that this doesn't become a point-of-no-return for possible manufacturing operations in the USA?

 

I'm not trying to be a party-pooper. I just don't want to see a good company--that has done a lot in the USA--getting shot in its foot because the Kickstarter might do too well.

 

Respectfully,

Crimsus

      Hello Reaper friends!  You might remember I did a whole tribe of Hill Giants on a display board, with hex bases?
       
      This is my follow up to that, this time: Stone Giants.
       
      Errrm, it all got a bit out of hand, and I'd LOVE some input from you all, please
       
      This is where I'm at after a week and I'm a bit stuck tbh.




       
      I think I need to decide more about what the "finish" will look like before I go a lot further. Once I cover that foam with more than paint it's going to be harder to make changes. I'm thinking of sort of "cladding" it in pieces of slate, with sculpted  bits / groundwork in the gaps?
       
      I'd also love to hear suggestions for other miniatures and features to add to the scene to break up those big open rocky spaces. Current extra bits and bobs are just there for a sense of scale and how extra minis might "interrupt" or "enhance" the scene.
       
      Some next steps though:
      - cork around the hexes on the platforms for the bases to fit into
      - some sort of "door frame"
      - "box in" the sides (which are cut out of a continuing mountainside, in my head at least)
       
      Please, rain your ideas and encouragements upon me!

      Help! I'm hating this paintjob.
       
      I grabbed this demilich thinking it'd be a fun and easy paintjob. But everything I do makes me hate it more.
       


       
      I was trying to go for a green flame look, so yellow on the inside, and gradually darker green highlights on the outside. These were drybrushed and then cleaned up by hand. I think this is where the problem started because it's not reading as fire. It just looks like a blobby mess?
       
      Should I just scrap it and start over with more of an ethereal glow that's darker in the middle and lighter on the edges?
       
      I also am not happy with the base. I've never painted a 2D base before, I've always added some kind of texturing material. And although I'm reasonably satisfied with how the base looks on the summoning circle behind the demilich, it looks so bad on the demilich base. And I think my green glow isn't helping. 
       
      And finally the Bones. I imagined that if there was a green light behind the Bones then they'd be tinted green and darker on the outside. Again .. this just doesn't look right.
       
      I'm normally fairly confident in my painting abilities, but I think I've landed in unfamiliar territory and I'm just not sure how to salvage or proceed. What can I do?

      NOTE: You can choose one demo monster ( skull or abberattion) I chose a batwinged skull and added horns to try it.

      This is my filthy first.
       
      I finally gave in and purchased one of the Bones figures. It is the otyugh-ish filth beast by Bob Ridolfi.
       

      It is a big change from the metal minis I usually purchase. The material is way bendy, almost like a green Gumby toy.


      The coolest thing is the way it is baka yoke, and all the pieces are "keyed" to a hole. I would have to try really hard to mess up the assembly on this one!

    • By MoonglowMinis
      First time showing something off on the forums! Normally only post to my instagram @MoonglowMinis
       
      Had a blast painting this one up! Had to tap into my painterly side to get the glow effect I wanted and to transition the plating down to the end of the tail where there was no sculpted detail. 
       
      Hope you all like it!
